It’s officially almost the last quarter of the year! I have to admit this is my favorite time of the year. The festive season is kicking off, winters are setting in, making it a beautiful in-between time of outward gaiety and inward reflection. Anyway, here is your Tarot forecast for October 2017.
Remember, this is a general Tarot reading for October and my intention with this one was: What do my blog readers need to know this month.
This is quite an interesting set of cards, I must say! It speaks so clearly to where I am on with my journey, and to the journeys of others that I have been witnessing. Traditionally, the 5 of Pentacles speaks of hardship and disease; to feelings of being an outsider looking in as others seem to have the things that you most desire.
With Diwali around the corner in India, it could literally point to overspending or feeling like you need to keep up with the Joneses. BUT, I would really invite you to look at this from a much deeper angle.
Where in your life are you feeling dis-ease? What have you been struggling with recently – it could be projects or work; something on the home front; relationships; maybe even your spirituality or creativity. What are you searching for that you think is “out there” – could it be that you are not recognizing that is “in here” already?
I think the real theme of this month is to sit with the dis-ease, to rip off the mask of separateness and victimhood, and to really understand where and how we may have given up our sovereignty.This work is really apt for this time of the year. As the season turns into winter, as the days grow darker and shorter, we too are called to turn inwards – to examine the contours of our lives, to look at the shadows so we can heal them and bring them back into the light.
The challenge, if we choose to accept it, is to see where and how we have been giving our power away. Where have we abdicated responsibility for our lives? Where have we let the outside voices of fear and hate and division create a more-often-than-not false sense of separateness and fear? Where have we let others dictate the course of our lives? What have we allowed to grow bigger than the whisper of our heart, of our soul, of our path, of our very life?
When we can see and understand that we have the power to choose how we walk through this world, when we can truly understand that no one else has the power to make us feel small or less than unless we let them, we can finally begin to come into wholeness…into balance…into sovereignty. It’s a constant dance, this remembering and forgetting and remembering again.
Will you dance? I know I will!
I hope this reading resonated with you. Do let me know in the comments!
